The Chat room has the amazing ability to be able to have scheduled events that overlay on the main site to encourage people to partake.
The problem is we don't really seem to have anything to schedule! Space.stack exchange schedules around launches to watch together, some other sites schedule around live streams of related topics.
This serves two fold, one, it builds up the community feeling having everyone together chatting and discussing, it encourages users to stick around and maybe partake in more discussions and reviews. Two, it gives us a chance to build a solid user base, communication and inter user relationships are very good at encouraging repeat visits and could do wonders for the site!
What events do you think we could schedule to encourage users to use more of the sites features than they may realise?
Post some suggestions below so we can vote on them!
